Precision Planting Launches vApply And vApplyHD

Taylor Truckey

vApplyHDPrecision Planting is launching a suite of fertility control products. These products will allow a grower to select from vApply, an implement-wide control system, or scale to vApplyHD, a highly accurate row-by-row liquid system. These products will allow growers to execute their fertility plan across the entire range of application rates for all passes through the field.

vApply is an implement-wide control system for liquid or granular applications, allowing 20/20 SeedSense SRM customers to control their fertility applications for both static and variable rate prescriptions.

vApplyHD is the industry first, on-row liquid control product which incorporates flow measurement and control into a single device. Its row by row features include turn compensation, swath, automatic flow balancing, and variable rate prescription execution. The module is easy to install, simple to use, and designed with industry leading flexibility. The vApplyHD module is used, without modification, from the lowest pop-up rates on the planter to the highest sidedress rates, across the full range of speeds. vApplyHD can be installed as row-by-row control or as section control.

Additionally, Precision Planting will be offering FlowSense, a flow sensor integrated with 20/20 SeedSense, to monitor and map row-by-row product application for existing liquid systems.

Justin McMenamy, Engineering Lead, mentioned how important the customization of liquid fertilizer passes is and went on to say, “With increased visibility to information on your farm, fertility plans need to remain flexible throughout the crop year, and from season to season. vApply HD combines the precision application of liquid fertility with the flexibility needed to execute an ever-evolving fertility program.”
